Popular Flowers For Virginia Weddings

Cafe au Lait Dahlias

Cafe au Lait Dahlias are a breathtaking flower whose head reaches up to 9 inches. This blushing flower is a fan favorite amongst brides, photographers, and event planners alike. These dahlias are nicknamed “dinner plate dahlias” due to their very large flower head. Surprisingly, cafe au lait dahlias can be homegrown. Due to the size of the cafe au lait dahlias, they work fantastically as a focal point in any bouquet. 


Ranunculuses are a great wedding flower due to their wide array of colors. There are many different shades of ranunculuses, such as: blush, deep burgundy, orange, peach, red, and purple. These flowers have paper-thin petals that bring a sense of elegance and delicacy to the occasion.


Sweetpeas are more often used during colder weather weddings, but it’s hard not to want them at every wedding of the year. They are one of the cutest flowers you can have at your wedding, and also one of the best smelling ones. Sweetpeas are a great addition to any centerpiece or bouquet, as their petals are a perfect accent. Like the ranunculuses, sweetpeas also come in a wide variety of colors.
